You put it in the hallway @dynax? :shock:

Holy shit......most of us here would get hell on earth if we did that!

Even more so with the state on that thing!

Looking at the thing the engine reminds me of a copy of an early Bantam and the frame and running gear from a Puch Maxi lol.
I am sure @dynax is going to have a lot of fun with this.
Cheers

Florence!

This is not the Magic Roundabout. Mind you Dynax and Dylan seem not too far distant from each other.
Maybe Dynax should change his user name to Zebedee. Mind you with Bridget and Xena(!) in the shed as well he's probably lost to all propriety.
Less empty roads but at last I can ride them!

We have spark and working throttle :thumb: the spark plug that was in is shagged but is different from the recommended one, the one that was in is a NGK b7HS10 but the recommeneded one from a search is a b5hs---, can't be sure the one that was in actually ran with it, so would it be best to get the b5hs or should i just get the b7hs10, cheers :thumb:

I'd veer towards the recommended one. Probably someone had to change spark at some point and that was all they had laying around :lol:

Thanks @Tiggie that was my thought too but can't find anything other than a b5hs no other numbers come up like 7 or 8 or 9 as i believe these are for a heat range on the plug maybe a 9 might be a suitable option ? :thumb:

Actually that reminds me of one of my first cars. I decided to change spark plugs, bought the correct ones for the car but after taking the old ones out I noticed they were shorter than the new. I double and triple checked online before installing! That was a very tense time on first start up, I was really expecting to hear a clang :shock:

i think these restoration posts should be done with video updates and commentary, much more interesting and you get the feeling your actually there and more involved ...
go for it @dynax :thumb:
